What It Means To Be Human
“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.” - Seneca
Have you made someone smile today with a random act of kindness? Do Something Nice Day reminds us to stop for a moment and do something nice. It’s very easy to get caught in our busy schedules and we just plough through the day trying to get everything done, too preoccupied to think of others.
Do Something Nice Day is a good reminder. This occasion is celebrated every October 5th. Check out our ideas on how you can celebrate this special event.
It’s About Giving Yourself To Others
Sharing is caring. And the feeling of being able to make someone smile gives us fulfilment. There are tons of things you can do this Do Something Nice Day! Here are some of the simplest and sweetest things you can do to help you get started:
Smile At A Stranger Just Because
They say that the greatest weapon you can ever have in your arsenal is your smile. It breaks the ice and it’s contagious! Make it a conscious effort to smile the whole day. You may not notice it, but you’ll feel good as well. And the best thing about this is it’s free!
Give Compliments To People Around You
Who doesn’t want to receive compliments? It's a sign of acceptance and validation.
People do rarely notice the good things in us. But when they do (and say it), it makes us feel really good.
Complimenting someone's work, kindness, consideration, dress, hair, or car would really make them feel appreciated and acknowledged. And just like a smile, this simple act of kindness is also free.
Whether it’s for a loved one or a stranger, roses are one of the best things to give to make anyone smile their brightest.

Tell Your Friends And Family You're Happy To Have Them In Your Life
Whether they're close by or faraway. And by whatever means you wish to do this (call, text, social media or face to face). All you have to do is to let them know how much you feel and appreciate them.
It’s Also About Being Nice To Yourself
Do Something Nice Day is not just about the people around you, but it’s also about you. Be nice to yourself! Sleep early, go to the gym or spend time on your hobby, go somewhere awesome, eat your favourites, meditate. Anything you can do for your own well-being, do it. You deserve to be happy as well!
Little Things Do Count
Do Something Nice Day gives you the chance to appreciate the little things by giving yourself to others. What you think is little is already a lot for some people. Like opening a door, giving a tip, paying the person in line before you, or simply saying “Thank you.”
You don’t have to practice this random act of kindness for just one day. Make these little things a practice conscious. You’ll develop compassion and empathy.
This is what it means to be human.
